MumbaiChennai Super Kings have added a new player to their squad just hours before the start of the first match of the IPL 14 season. Chennai have acquired another Australian speed star, Behrendorf, to replace the departed Australian pacer Heiselwood.

Behrendorf was the star of the Mumbai Indians in 2019. Behrendorf took 5 wickets in 5 matches for Mumbai. Behrendorf played 20 T20s and 11 ODIs for Australia.

Heiselwood withdrew from the IPL due to fears of Kovid. Heiselwood also said he wants to spend more time with his family. Heiselwood’s resignation was a major blow to Chennai.
